Welcome to Market Alley Wines

Our Fantastic Featured Wines for April 22

Besides a couple behind the scenes details, our expansion is finally complete! The new space is beautiful and doubles seating! We have also set the date for our Grand Re-Opening Party (aka Customer LOVE Shindig!) - May 23. We are thrilled to have Blue Mother Tupelo back! Save the date!

Top Shelf Selection:

Provenance 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Rutherford, CA. The expansive aromas and flavors of Provenance Vineyards Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon are filled with brambly blackberry, dark plum, black cherry and cassis character. Hints of clove, black pepper and mocha add warmth to the aromas, while toffee and hazelnut notes from oak aging linger on the dark-fruit palate. Cocoa powder tannins, a signature of Rutherford terroir, firmly frame the generous, mouth-filling flavors.

White Wine Selection:

Montinore Estates Müller Thurgau - Willamette Valley. Ahh, Müller Thurgau. What was once seen only as a cheap, sweet white wine, has been lifted to new heights by white winemaker Stephen Webber. This playful wine has hints of peach, quince, pear, apricot, gardenias and honeysuckle on the nose.  The palate is rich with  mouthwatering lime, honeydew melon, apricot and apple. It finishes clean with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and guava.

Epica 2012 Sauvignon Blanc - Chili. A burst of passion fruit, fig and green tea refreshes the palate.

Epica 2012 Chardonnay - Chili. Smooth and subtle and sips like summer. It's a citrus sensation with a smooth creamy finish, 100% un-oaked.

Red Wine Selection:

Epica 2012 Red Blend - Chili. The combination of three different grapes from three different valleys delivers distinctive characteristics to this one of kind Red Blend, resulting in a wine with ripe tannins and exceptional smooth character.

Barista 2012 Pinotage - South Africa. This coffee-styled Pinotage is deeply colored, and laden with rich dark-roasted coffee, mocha and blackberry aromas and flavors, with vanilla throughout. The coffee character is achieved through additional toasting of the barrels, resulting in attractive and unique intensified flavors.

Epica 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Chili. Brilliant ruby red with violet tones. Lively ripe berries with subtle hints of spice. Luscious flavors of blackberry and raspberry jam.

We stock 80 craft beers and our beer list is always changing.

With over 100 unique Bourbons, Ryes and Whiskeys (and a few Scotches!) you won't find a better selection of brown than at Market Alley Wines!
